Thinking and writing about all of the looming climate-related crises headed our way can get depressing. As part of an effort to pull myself out of the muck, I want to start focusing some attention on things that are being done to prevent or adapt to climate change. Both will have to be engaged with increasing resources in the future. As with all planning, it’s best to start with where we are today. To that end, I want to present some work I found and get other folks thinking and writing about it.
A Dr. Boyd Cohen has put together a top-10 list: “Top 10 Climate-Ready Cities in the U.S.“. Now, I hate most top-10 lists, especially those dealing with pop culture topics. That’s mostly because I seem to disagree with the specific placement of entries to the list. Most of the time, nobody knows how a top-10 list was assembled. What criteria were utilized to generate the list? Well, in this case, the criteria are at least presented by Dr. Cohen. Whether you and I agree with the inclusion of the criteria doesn’t matter, mostly because it’s not our list.
